Batch Process


From the late 1960s onwards, interactive computing such as via text-based computer terminal interfaces (as in Unix shells or read-eval-print loops), and later graphical user interfaces became common.

Non-interactive computation, both one-off jobs such as compilation, and processing of multiple items in batches, became retrospectively referred to as batch processing, and the oxymoronic term batch job (in early use often “batch of jobs”) became common. Early use is particularly found at the University of Michigan, around the Michigan Terminal System (MTS); examples from 1968 and 1969.

Instead known as a set program, order processing is just a manner of running information that happen in one single big class rather than individually. Order processing is generally performed to help preserve system resources before being processed and permit for almost any adjustments. For Example, a banks may order process almost all their purchases once every time rather than running each transaction.
